    Hi, this is my car:
    Nissan Qashqai 1.2 turbo (maybe, I never understood it) petrol.

    Currently it is also found in the game but with another configuration (diesel) RQ14
    The engine features are 85Kw - 116hp - 190 Nm for a maximum declared speed of 185km / h with 0-100km / h in 10.6 sec (an eternity)
    but for the family it is very comfortable and I hope also quite safe.

    it is equipped with several electronic security systems (far too many, I still prefer cars with only the engine, carburetor and crank windows)

    It looks solid, two years ago a vw passat hit me up and the rear one held up well, while the nose of the passat no.

    VIDEO LINK:

    houston we have a problem, the video is not available because the car is continuously used by my wife. but, now that I think about it, where will it always go ....?






    i found the picture of the accident

    but this is the real pride, a fantastic graziella restored with my hands this summer:

    Wait... what?
    It has 4 wheels and an engine. I'm sure I could modify it to be perfectly reasonable transportation for a gerbil.
    If I do that will I be eligible?

    But I spent days making that video*, surely the slo-mo bit at the end is worth a Plastic Pack or a pair of Top Drives Socks?

    * Not entirely true

    I'm honestly a little surprised at the lack of participation.  This was so easy to enter.

    2008 Porsche 911 4S (Approximate RQ of A25)
    My fondest memory is the purchase.  I spent over 6 months looking for a yellow 4S with a manual and finally found one in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA.  Emailed back and forth with the owner for about a week, then decided to pull the trigger on the purchase.  I had to travel that week for work, so the wait was agonizing, but Friday finally rolled around and I found myself in the Pittsburgh airport, where I met up with my wife.  We grabbed a rental and bummed around the area for the evening.  Let me tell you, that was difficult to fall asleep at the hotel that night.  We were up the next morning and signing the paperwork at his house by 9am, because we had to get on the road.  We had a near 1400 mile drive and just 36 hours to make it home by Sunday night.  The trip was thankfully uneventful.  I also didn't give up the steering wheel for the entire ~22 hours that we spent in the car that day and the next, much to my wife's amusement.  It's now been about 18 months since I bought it and I still get that giddy feeling every time I get in my childhood dream car.

    Last picture in the previous owner's driveway


    How it sits today, now that I've adjust the coilovers and pulled it a little closer to the pavement (I really need to get some shots out and about)


    And a shot my wife took on our trip home from buying it, somewhere in Ohio, I think.  I love this picture and yes, the car is technically in it.


    I wish I could have made a video this week, because the Tubi exhaust is amazing, but work and the weather haven't been on my side.

    Does Steve get extra points for matching his ladder to his car? 
    What about the garage door opener?  No honorable mention?  :D

    I ended plastidipping my door pillars and they have lasted for over 5 years like that.

    I know we’re going off on a bit of a tangent but I dipped the wheels on my last car, it’s decent stuff if done properly. Lasted a long time.
